10 Bulldog Wrestlers move on to Individual Regionals

Saturday, February 15, 2020

The Romeo wrestlers traveled to Davison High School to compete in the Individual District Tournament.  There were 14 teams in attendance. The top 4 individuals from each weight moved on to the Individual Regional Tournament next Saturday at Oxford High School.  The top 4 wrestlers at next weeks’ regional will qualify for the Individual State Tournament at Ford Field. Romeo entered 14 wrestlers in 9 weight classes after double entering in five weight classes.  The coaches were very confident and went into the tournament shooting to get all 14 out to regionals. Romeo ended up with 10 wrestlers advancing and were close to 13 advancing with 3 guys losing in the blood round.  Overall the Bulldogs were well-represented. We had 5 in the finals with one champ and some very tough scrappy matches all day. It is an exciting time of year and it is awesome to see the guys who put so much into the sport get rewarded for their efforts.  It is also tough when you have a guy so close and get knocked out. We are very proud of the whole team. We had teammates and parents of guys who weren’t wrestling show up to support the guys wrestling. It was a great day of wrestling and a great day for the team!
